Welcome to the Royal Grammar School Guildford, Dubai!

We are delighted to partner with the soon to be opened, Royal Grammar School Guildford Dubai, which will welcome its first pupils in September 2021.

We sat down with the team to find out more about this prestigious school and what to expect when one of the top UK schools opens it’s doors in Dubai.

Our campus is designed for boys and girls aged from 3 to 18. Initially, we will be accepting primary age pupils (age 3 -11), and the school will grow year by year.

Our school will embody the ethos and values that have underpinned the Royal Grammar School Guildford in the UK for over 500 years. These, combined with a spirit of innovation and development, will prepare pupils for the challenges of the 21st and 22nd centuries. We lead by example, stay true to our values, innovate, collaborate, and strive to be the very best we can be.

The education at the Royal Grammar School Guildford, Dubai is based on our school offering in the UK with some adaptations for life in Dubai. We offer our pupils a happy, well-ordered, and stimulating environment where they can progress to their full potential. Our curriculum is carefully planned to maintain a balance between ‘what’ is to be learned alongside ‘how’ we learn.

Our school has been designed with the community and sustainability in mind. Located within Majid Al Futtaim’s exciting new Tilal Al Ghaf development between Dubai Motor City and Sports City, our school is a vibrant hub where education goes beyond the classroom. It is a welcoming space where pupils, teachers, parents, and the local community come together.

The Royal Grammar School Guildford, Dubai (RGSGD) welcomes applications for admission from pupils regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religion or learning needs. We intend to create a harmonious and inclusive learning community where pupils can thrive socially, emotionally, and academically. We invite and welcome all prospective families who are interested in attending RGSGD to make an appointment with our Admissions Team and join us for a personalised information session. We believe that the choice of school is one of the most important decisions that a parent will ever make and is individual to every child.

We know that choosing the right school is a huge decision for a parent. We view education as a three-way partnership between parent, school and child, and work with the parents to help them decide whether the Royal Grammar School Guildford, Dubai (RGSGD) is the right place for their child. Where possible, we prefer to meet with the parents and child to provide all the information needed and answer any questions.

We highly encourage that you register for a virtual meeting with our Head of Prep, Mrs Clare Turnbull. We look forward to welcoming our new pupils into the RGSGD family.
